Giuliani Walks Into the Lion’s Den and Pulls a Rabbit Out of a Hat

A miracle occurred today in Washington that makes the miracle of the loaves and fishes pale in comparison. Rudy Giuliani not only came away from the Family Research Council’s Values Voters convention in DC with his skin still attached, but he turned the tide of religious fanaticism toward him.

Evangelical Christians loves them some Rudy Giuliani.

Or at least two of them do, from what I read in this New York Times article on Giuliani’s speech before them early Saturday.

How he did it is nothing less than genius. He basically said “This is the way I am, take it or leave it, just know that I will never lie to you. Just know that you can trust me.” Religious conservatives are really big on candidates who say they won’t lie to them. You know, like the previous presidential candidate that they supported in droves.

The Times article went on to say that he just may have derailed the 3rd party candidate option that was brought up late last month at a Salt Lake City meeting of James Dobson’s Focus on the Family.

I am characteristically unhopeful that these people will actually carry through with their plan to unearth and vote for a 3rd party candidate – one who more closely matches their own social conservative values. It’s just TOO off the wall for them. And now maybe Rudy speech has set then to filling in that hole.

I think maybe some have come over to Giuliani Girl’s point of view.

Maybe according to those two starry-eyed elephants the NYT talked to, but not the poll of all "Values Voters" attendees, according to the Family Research Council.

Rudy still got some 'splainin' to do.
